• ON THIS DAY IN WWF HISTORY (September 13, 2001) – SmackDown [First WWF Show After 9/11]
On this day in 2001, the World Wrestling Federation aired an episode of their weekly TV show ‘WWF SmackDown!’.

• WWE Advertising The Rock, Kane & Shane McMahon vs. DX For Next Week’s SmackDown
It looks like WWE made a mistake while sending the description for next week’s SmackDown to cable companies.
Below is what the description reads:
“It’s all out pandemonium on this week’s episode of SmackDown. In the main event the unlikely team of Shane McMahon, The Rock, and Kane battle D-Generation X. What role will Stone Cold Steve Austin play in all of this? Edge goes one-on-one with Hardcore Holly.”
This is actually the description for November 11, 1999 edition of WWF SmackDown!
While this is simply a mistake, we bet our Old School WWF fans wouldn’t mind seeing WWE air this 20 year old episode of SmackDown next week!
